a lot of secret things that our government does through the cia and special forces, but the theory here is that the executive branch is not allowed to do it on its own, that there's at least oversight from congress. and in the past we've known, the new jersey committees -- intell committees on the hill have always been lap dogs and not watch dogs. the memo that we see today doesn't have anything along those lines, and to me that's the most worrisome because we can come up here with different hypothetical scenarios and argue whether they justify use of drones or not, but i want someone who actually is doing this and reviewing this on a day-to-day basis. >> on that basis, ryan, we have hearings thursday for the president's nominee for cia director, john brennan, and he helped design this very program. should we expect that this memo is going to formulate much of the questioning that he has to sustain and take on thursday? >> well, this memo ought to as well as his history with the cia's torture of suspects who were in detention. all of those things are going to be bubbling up here, but, y
on facebook. >> now, former cia officials for the george w. bush administration defends the use of enhanced interrogations in the search for osama bin laden. former cia director michael hayden joins former cia counsel john rizzo, who advised the bush administration on interrogations. warmer cia national clandestine service director josÉ rodriguez. they also responded to the interrogation scenes in the film ."ero dark thirty workou >> i am a member of the task force on detention and interrogation policy. the recent film depicting the operation that killed osama bin laden as part controversy over the graphic depictions of terrorist interrogations and their role in leading us to osama bin laden. the outage on the film has been coming from the left and directed at ms. bigelow. if you are a conservative like me, when you see the washington left in a brawl with the hollywood left, your temptation is to enjoy the fight. i interrupt while
defense secretary. a different committee hold as hearing for the man picked to run the cia. john brennan. for more of these controversial nominees, let's bring in our chief congressional correspondent, dana bash, and gloria borger. dana, what are your sources telling you about chuck hagel's confirmation? >> reporter: well, you know, there are supposed to be at least the chairman, carl levin wants a vote in the senate armed services committee tomorrow but it might not happen. one may reason is that many republicans on the committee don't want it to. we're told that they are circulating a letter urging senator levin to delay it. and they say, these republicans, that they are still waiting for key information from hagel. for example, senator lindsey graham told me he still doesn't p have information about the speeches that hagel gave, who he spoke to, what he said, and what he was paid. and the ranking committee, james inhoff said he's looking for people to slow this train down. senator levin doesn't like partisan food fights. and so an aide said that they would not be surprised if levin do
's ability to rein in cia and -- to rein in cia access. >> colonel, this is warfare that americans aren't used to. and they ask questions about what are our constitutional -- what is our leeway here? what is fair game and what is not? and how are these decisions being made? is this just the new wave of warfare that we have to get used to? >> it is, because we have the technology now to do things we haven't done before. but the argument that congress ought to be involved in supervising this is an important one, and we should not ignore it. the congress has a responsibility, not just the authority, but the responsibility to supervise the activities of the executive branch, and in particular, the intelligence committee which takes a look at all the black programs and is kept in the loop on everything certainly has the capability of making an evaluation of what is the right thing to do and is the wrong thing to do, and needs to weigh in. to the extent it doesn't do that, then it's abrogated its responsibilities. >> sam, what is your take on what the hearings are going to be like tomorrow fo
of debate within the administration, but. >> that would be true. >> with cia nominee john brennan's confirmation hearing set for thursday, the pressure on the administration to be more transparent will only increase. in the last year, the administration officials have given several speeches that were designed to give the illusion of transparency on this issue by the use of force in targeted killings without being fully transparent. brennan was the first administration official to publicly acknowledge the drone strikes calling them, quote, ethical and just in a speech at the wilson center last year. >> it is hard to imagine a tool that can better minimize the risk to civilians than remotely piloted aircraft. for the same reason, targeted strikes conform the principle of humanity which requires us to use weapons that will not inflict unnecessary suffering. >> and at a speech last march at northwestern university law school, attorney general eric holder said the targeted killings of americans are constitutional if government officials determine the target poses an imminent threat of
, with more than 400 cia strikes against targets in pakistan and yemen. that's eight times as many as under president george w. bush. and now nbc news's michael isikoff has obtained a 16-page justice department memo that makes the legal argument to justify this administration's use of drones to kill terror suspects, including american citizens. the government can order the killing of its own citizens without due process if those citizens are believed to be senior operational leaders of al qaeda or an associated force, even if there is no intel indicating they are involved in an active plot to attack the united states. today attorney general eric holder addressed the issue. >> we only take these kinds of actions when there is an eminent threat, when capture is not feasible, and when we are confident we are doing so in a way that is consistent with federal and international law. >> yet, according to the memo, the government gets to define the word "eminent" in a very broadway. the condition that an operational leader present an imminent threat of violent attack against the united states does
happen to have a known terrorist on the cia's department watch list in your living room, perhaps you have some issues, too. don't get me wrong. >> no, you don't, harold. did you go to law school? if you're an american, are you telling me if you're an american overseas and you happen to stumble into the wrong zip code, you could be killed because somebody is sitting in the living room of a guy who is a terrorist? >> i've never had one in my living room. >> but you may not know the guy is a terrorist. maybe you know him from the mosque you're going to. maybe you're the only two americans. i don't know how to play this. >> all these questions have to be answered. >> just because you're in the same proximity with a suspected terrorist, who has not been charged with any crimes, then you may be killed. >> call me old-fashioned, i like checks and balances on the executive branch, even during war. >> i agree with you. the senate should ask these questions, i don't disagree with that. >> here's my question. i get the hip poxcracy of it or disconnect previous administrations have received and this
before the senate for confirmation as cia director on thursday, where he's expected to face tough questions about the targeted killings. as one of the chief architects of the controversial obama program, he's defended the program in the past. >> we conduct targeted strikes, because they are necessary to mitigate an actual ongoing threat, to stop plots, prevent future attacks, and to save american lives. >> now, a bipartisan group of senators led by democrats wants to see a classified version of this document. there is a classified legal opinion, they believe there's more information in there they want to review. they say if they do not get it, some of the nominations for national security officials, perhaps even brennan's, maybe held up in the senate. wolf? >> all right, barbara, thank you. later this hour, we'll have a major debate on the president's policies on these drones' so-called kill list, including the killing of americans. that's coming up later this hour. kate balduan is here. you've got some new details on what happened 24 hours ago, almost exactly. >> on that amazing
. i watched the first whatever but he thinks that -- it does make the c.i.a. -- it is like -- i was saying kathryn bigelow wrote a thing in the "l.a. times." she talks about she doesn't personally believe torture led to bin laden -- but she said to portray that time without including it -- >> it wouldn't have been true to history. >> stephanie: it would not have been historically accurate. i understand that. >> it does make it look like torture led to it. >> stephanie: a lot of people had that view that saw it. we'll talk about what she said. we have tina dupuy. we have representative louis gutierrez. >> you yelled at me for helping you last time. >> luis gutierrez. >> stephanie: right back on "the stephanie miller show." [ ♪ theme ♪ ] >> stephanie: hour number two. current tv. jacki schechner, we were talking about the story about the tea party is at war with the karl rove g.o.p. establishment group. i don't mean for that to make me happy. but the other headline i just read, jim is republicans can't find anyone to run for massachusetts senate seat. so john mccain you see sa
." and yet we insisted on ignoring them. george tenet was the cia head at the time. he said, my hair is on fire in july of that year. i went down to see the fbi about something else. they said, you ought to take a look at terrorism. we just blithely kept going and then it blew up in our face. this is an opportunity, it seems to me, to take the immigration example of people in the house and in the senate to cross party lines and say, let's begin by doing something about medicare. we know -- we all know we have to do something about that. let's begin by doing something about tax reform. they have moved on immigration, which is an encouraging sign, but it's less than the sum of the parts at this moment in terms of how they want to take a kind of whole approach to what we're going to have to do. and there's going to have to be some people from the ground up in the house and the senate who are going to seize this and say, i don't want this on my record. i'm serving in congress. i'm serving in the senate. and when i go out of here, historians are going to look back and say that we complete
